Canon 7

Recently i spotted this camera on sale...and a 2nd look, i realised that it has one of the rare lens that canon produced. The canon 50mm f2.2, a 5 element in 4 groups lens, rigid designed by Mukai Jiro in January 1961. The is by far the only details i have on this lens.
With a nice package price for both the camera and lens, i didnt really hesitate much before buying it. It took 3 days to reach me from Japan from EMS and it was really in a minty condition both the lens and camera. The working meter was a bonus!



I guess im really in love with the canon 50's....i had 4 of them as at now and every single one has a different character of it's own!

I have already had a roll of film loaded in the camera! Wait for my next post on the pictures taken from this lovely set up!

Finding Colors in Little India

I realized that this place is filled with much as how the Indians love them. Im glad i had a roll of fuji proplus 100 on my R2A...and i shot most of these with the Ultron 35mm f1.7. This lens is amazing!

It was raining that day when we went...but this place was never dull...

As we enter the streets, it was filled with activities despite the rain..


He was actually posing for my camera...

Amidst the crowds, this guys is reading in peace


Its so colorful here!


This shop has some really nice paintings

Here's another shop selling all sorts of scarf

Gold and Jewellery shops is at almost every single street in Little India!Best place to shop for gold if you are interested to look for bargain and deals!

It was still raining when i left the place....but i will definitely return to this place for more photo walk!

Little India

For so many years, i have never tried to explore this area...but i am glad i did and thanks to Benji for organising this outing..its really a wonderful place for streets photography! The local indian community are a humble group of people who are very photo friendly and approachable..

this is also my first try using HC110 dilution H for developing my negative...the results are quite nice.

A little miscalculation that unlike a viewing thru a VF..and should have compensate a little by tilting the lens upwards...nonetheless i still find this picture acceptable.
